(Rachel Blevins) A teenage boy was arrested and detained for the crime of posting a photo on social media of a toy gun he received as a birthday gift. Despite the fact that the photo included a “Warning” sticker on the gun, which stated that it was a toy, the student was suspended from school and treated as a criminal.

As a senior at Amity High Regional School, Zach Cassidento said he did not think he was doing anything wrong when he received a new airsoft gun for his birthday and posted a photo of it on Snapchat.

My Commentary: Do you think NJ’s criminal government will clear the records of those victims they previously kidnapped, robbed, stripped, caged, and extorted merely for engaging in this exact peaceful, victimless activity, before it magically became “legal”? I’m asking for a friend. 😉

(John Paul Stevens) Rarely in my lifetime have I seen the type of civic engagement schoolchildren and their supporters demonstrated in Washington and other major cities throughout the country this past Saturday. These demonstrations demand our respect. They reveal the broad public support for legislation to minimize the risk of mass killings of schoolchildren and others in our society.

That support is a clear sign to lawmakers to enact legislation prohibiting civilian ownership of semiautomatic weapons, increasing the minimum age to buy a gun from 18 to 21 years old, and establishing more comprehensive background checks on all purchasers of firearms. But the demonstrators should seek more effective and more lasting reform. They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment.

Tax Cuts Will Help Defund Resentment Politics

We Need Tax Cuts to Defuse Political Extremism:
https://fee.org/articles/you-should-favor-tax-cuts-especially-if-you-despise-trumpism/

(Jeffrey A. Tucker) Donald Trump has revived his earlier tax proposal that would (it appears) reduce taxes for everyone. The predictable debate has already begun with all the usual posturing.

Is this mainly for the rich? Any tax cut worth doing will disproportionately benefit the rich because the rich pay most of the taxes. That is a given, so anyone barking up this tree is just gaming the debate in hopes of inciting envy.
